What is Cayenne Pepper?
Cayenne is the fruit of the Capsicum plant, a spice well known for its fiery hot taste. It is also known as red pepper, red hot chili pepper, chili pepper, paprika. Used in the Americas for millenia, chili peppers were found in the diet – it was Christopher Columbus who discovered them.
The fruits of all capsicum plants except one (bell pepper) contain capsaicin - the component that produces the heat or burning sensation. The highest concentration of capsaicin is found in the white pith around the seeds.
Not all chili peppers contain the same amount of capsaicin. The Scoville scale is used to measure the heat of a chili pepper.
